debate between joe biden and paul ryan? >> well, i am sure that vice president biden got a phone call from the white house and said you know look, we didn't go after governor romney as much and so you have got to turn up the heat. because the debates are about controlling the ground. whoever is viewed as the one who controls the debate, who is on the offense, i don't necessarily just mean attacking your opponent. governor romney didn't attack the president the entire night. governor romney stayed on his message whoever stays on message will be viewed as the victor. i'm sure that vice president biden has been coached to get back on message and go after paul ryan. how much he will do that we'll see. i'm sure that congressman ryan has been preparing on the policy side and preparing mentally for this. this is the first time he will have been on this stage. i think both men will be very prepared. >> and. >> chris: briefly looking ahead to the next presidential debate on october 16 nine days from now you have to know that obama will be much more aggressive to show that was just a bad night.

less than a month. our most high-profile hire, joe biden, had only been with us six weeks. we still did not know joe the plumber yet. so it's funny to look back on that time. remember coming into september four years ago and we had a big convention in denver, an amazing summer, a fund toward that went off flawlessly, we had rolled out our new vice president and rolling in to september and we have a convention that big and we feel we have momentum and the next day john mccain announces sarah palin as vice presidents. you could just feel something all of a sudden. people can say what about how ready she was, but in that moment sarah palin made a pretty grand entrance onto the national stage. she blew through. i often talk about that as hurricane sarah. we had the republican convention. there were two hurricane events in my mind. they had to cancel the first day of their convention and then there was hurricane sarah. the head wind was still for about 18 days. john mccain came out of his convention in september with a three-point lead. that stretched to about six or eight points in mid sept
